Our Mission, Our Vision, Our Goal

Our mission is to aid and encourage intellectually gifted, underserved middle school through high school students to reach their full potential and become leaders equipped to help others in similar economic and social situations.

Offering a year-round enrichment and advocacy program, bolstered by a summer enrichment camp, middle school students receive support to foster their intellectual, social, emotional and physical development. Our high school advocacy program provides mentoring to assist with challenges, course selections, scholarship opportunities, and the college application process.

Our goal is to foster the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of these children, to provide support and information to the family unit, and to offer guidance in planning for advanced educational opportunities.
